Tom Kennedy evangelized art cars all over the US (building more the 40 of them), and was fundamental to the creation of the Orange show in Houston, Texas. The Orange show is now the largest art car event in the world with 200,000 attendees. This video is from Weird TV on Tom. As the bumper sticker says: Never Forget Tom Kennedy. He brought many great art works to this world, always fun to hang out with, was politically active for positive causes like Bikes to Bosnia, and achieved an incredible amount in his time.
The 1996 theme at Burning Man was Helco – with the elaborate staged event organized by Kal Spellitch and many many helpers. This Weird TV segment gives a inside lok at the art and mayhem of that year .
